Our high quality wire basket muzzles are imported from Europe. Veterinarians and Dog Trainers agree that a basket dog muzzle is best for the dog. Your dog can drink water and pant while wearing this basket cage muzzle. This muzzle will help to keep your dog from biting, chewing and eating junk such as rocks or sticks. The basket is made of crome coated wire and the straps are leather. The nose pad is leather with felt lining.
Please measure your dogs snout length & snout circumference! How to measure your dogs snout:
Length - measure your dog from his eyes to the tip of his nose.
Circumference - measure just below the dogs eyes, go all the way around the snout in a circle. This should be the widest part of the snout just below the eyes.
To get the correct basket size for small size dogs add approximately 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch to the dogs exact circumference of his snout. To get the correct basket size for medium size dogs add approximately 1 inch to 1-1/2 inches to the dogs exact circumference of his snout. To get the correct basket size for big and large size dogs add approximately 2 to 3 inches to the dogs exact circumference of his snout.
Head Strap. Most sizes of the heavy duty wire baskets will have a head strap which is not shown in the picture. Size 0, size 2 and size 2/4 do not have a head strap. If you do not want the head strap you can very easily cut it off. If the head strap is removed the muzzle can not be returned or exchanged.
